Sent Jeffrey a message yesterday...he replied that he plans to do test prints of the decals this weekend. Last month, he was doing test-fitting of the decals on the sample kit I sent him. Hopefully, that process is finished...since he's doing test printings I'm guessing he's in the home stretch. I'm ready to give him a somewhat sizable order!

I would guess given Jeff's latest update on Facebook things might take a bit time (understandably)

Talked to Jeff about all this last week. He's REALLY shook up.

I gotta tell ya---- I think he's gonna be down longer than he thinks.

I was pretty heartbroken over the whole thing. Kip's is a really great guy once we got to know him. But to Jeff, he WAS his brother---- at Wonderfest, if you saw one of those fellas, the other was only a step away.

Man I hate this sort of thing.....

Seconded. (I'm a bit ignorant of Facebook...)

Edit:
I searched, I read about Kip's cancer and passing. Very sorry to hear....

Jeffrey's close friend and business partner died of cancer. Cancer is never a good way to go but it's tougher to take when the victim is relatively young....I believe Kip was in his early fifties.

These parts are 3D prints from i.materialise for my 1/350 U.S.S. Reliant conversion kit. Wanted to post them to show the quality of pieces you get from this company. All parts I've previously had printed were done on Objet machines in VeroWhite material. Those parts were pretty damn good, done in high resolution, with an average of maybe an hour's worth of cleanup spent on each part. These were done in i.materialise's Prime Gray material and are the best 3D printed parts I've ever gotten, mainly because of the minimal cleanup time. These are nearly finished with just a few minute's work per part. Not knocking the parts I've previously received as the accuracy was terrific...but these are just as accurate and they cleaned up more quickly.

The top 2 parts are pieces already included in the kit...I need to make new molds for them. The bottom parts are for an add-on package I'm doing...these pieces will be cast in translucent resin to make it easy to light the inset light fixtures around the shuttle bays as well as the grillwork at the outer edge. The idea is to splice these pieces into the existing rear hull (you can splice in the whole parts or just cut them down to smaller bits and do what you want), paint over the areas you don't want lit, and add lights to the rear of the parts to shine through the translucent, unpainted area. Note the bays doors are open...I'm also working on a shuttle bays based on the Federation Frontiers blueprints.

Jeff is delivering decals and they're going out to prior buyers of the kit...the process isn't going as quickly as I'd hoped, but it's getting done.
